20 charged over Chief’s murder – Starr Fm

Police prosecutors have charged 20 persons with murder over the death of the Chief of Ardeyman near Amasaman in the Greater Accra region.

The 20 accused persons were presented at the Adjabeng District Court presided over by Magistrate Isaac Addo Wednesday morning.

Nii Tettey Sarbah, Nkͻsoͻhene (Development Chief) of Amasaman, was shot and butchered to death by unknown assailants on Thursday 8th June 2017.

His body was found lying on a mat, arms up with a deep and wide cut on his forehead.

Lawyers for the accused persons in court protested the arrest of their clients claiming that they are innocent as they do not know anything about the murder of the chief in question.

The court, however, paid no attention to the prayer of the defense lawyers.

The Magistrate of the court remanded all the accused persons into custody to reappear on the 12th July, 2017, pending further Police investigations.
